    How do you know it's an ex-Swift driver? That's not in the article.

    Probably was ticketed for having his foot on the dash. The ticket got him fired. So he decides to fire at the cops.

    A new category of Darwin Award is budding.

    What a dumb ### and I hope they forget where they put the key after they lock him up.

    We need less gun control and more idiot control.

    Bah...idiots.

    Sirscrapntruckalot - Stop trying to disarm me, I'm rather attached to them.

    That explains it -DOT cited him for being 2,360 pounds overweight at a weigh station. Set him back $135.
    I guess he was a little pissed off about it.
    Closest weigh stations in their jurisdiction is on I-70(Mayview)-east of Odessa,I-35 in Kearney and I-49 in Harrisonville.
    I contacted that barracks the very day before (Monday) to assist in responding to the incident I was involved in!

    No, it has to be something else. That ticket was in 2019. He quit Swift eleven months later. The ticket didn't cost him his job, and it's hard to believe he was still mad enough about it to shoot someone 15 months after he got it. Last name Rahim may have something to do with it. Then again he might just be crazy. He did try to attack a police station by himself.

    You never know. Sometimes people can hold a grudge and act out on it months or years down the road-which would show premeditation.
    Somethings just can’t be explained in this world. Maybe more will be found out if he lives. This guy practically went on a suicide mission.
